The variety of colors and the turbulent flow of pedestrians in the center of the city Khust create a feeling of the East. It grows when you go to Independence Square, which has been transformed into a city bazaar. Turn left on the square and after a few meters you can see the building of the Kabbalistic synagogue, built in 1878. At the beginning of the 20th century, a large Jewish community lived in the city. In the spring of 1944, when the fascists took Jews to concentration camps, they brought their spiritual literature to be stored in the synagogue building. Several hundred Jews who were lucky enough to survive and return home took their books back.
